Watercolour Painting Holidays for 2011 at Alison House

This is the time of year when I can benefit from seeing everyone at Patchings to tell them about courses over the next year.

I've been running day courses in my studio and they have been full to bursting and we've had a great time and some wonderful painting has taken place (although I am becoming more and more convinced that people were really coming for the delicious lunch served by my lovely husband!)

There are still five of those still to run, (all booked up I'm afraid.) But in 2011 I am going to run some residential courses where we can get away from it all and they will be open to more painters.

Here are some details...

Dates August 22 - 25 2011

and October 3 - 6 2011

Price £395 to include

- 3 full days tuition with demonstrations from Ann

- AA 4 Star accommodation in ensuite double rooms (TV, Wi fi, tea/coffee, hairdryer etc.)

- Breakfast, lunch and dinner with wine each day.

Thursday Painting till lunch, then course review and feedback, packing up for 3-4pm

Cromford is a centre for tourism and historical interest in the Derbyshire Peak. Within walking distance of the Hotel, there are a range of shops, sites of historical interest, eg. Arkwright's Mill and beauty spots, eg. River Derwent and Cromford Canal.

Talking about it is making me want to go now and get away from it all with no cares apart from having to change the painting water occasionally!
